This site is about art and journaling, art and mixed-media art, art and painting, art and mailart, art and ATCs, art and fiber arts, and…
Well, you get the idea.
I’m Aisling D’Art, and this website – at Aisling.net – has been online since the 1990s. (It started at GeoCities’ Soho community.) I’ve written hundreds of articles here, mostly how-to ideas and examples. All of them are about making art, especially art for journals.
For 2020, I decided to reorganize this site and relaunch it with a fresh name. But… I had no idea what to call it.
After two days of trying to find the best name, I was talking with my husband. I said, “I’m trying to find a name for the site that suggests everything artsy I work on. So, it needs to be ‘art and…’ something.”
And then he & I laughed, because that phrase fits this site perfectly.
It’s “art and… something.”
So that’s how you can reach this site – either with the original URL (Aisling.net) or with ArtAndSomething.com.
During January and February, I’ll be updating and streamlining this site, daily. I’ll also be integrating my art-related content from my other sites, like ArtistsJournals.com, so all the articles are in one place.
It’s a new year and a new decade, and I’m kind of excited about this.
